The Queen of Spain attended a meeting within the framework of the Spanish Red Cross conference on "Gender Violence: Strategies and Challenges" at the charity's headquarters in Madrid.
The aim of the conference is to evaluate the organisations response in the fight against gender violence.
The Spanish Red Cross helps more than 20,000 female victims of gender violence per year. In 10 provinces they provide temporary shelter along with employment projects to reinforce personal and professional skills to re-enter the workforce.
Queen Letizia stepped out in a new grey pant suit by Hugo Boss.
It consists of the BOSS 'Jalorra' Glen Check Double Breasted Wool Jacket and a pair of wide-leg trousers in a matching pattern. I have not been able to find a stock photo of the coordinating trousers.
Queen Letizia teamed it with a soft white blouse.
Draped over her shoulder was a light sand Felipe Varela wool belted wrap coat.
The coat dates back to 2010 but this is the first occasion she has worn it publicly since becoming Queen consort in June 2014.
Letizia complemented the professional look with her Hugo Boss 'Fanila' clutch and black Magrit pointy-toe pumps.
She finished the ensemble with her gold bamboo design huggie hoop earrings.
The Queen of Spain attended audiences at the Palace of Zarzuela today.
Her Majesty first received representatives of the Federación de Distribuidores Cinematográficos 'FEDICINE' (Federation of Cinematographic Distributors) where she heard about the challenges facing the film distribution sector.
Queen Letizia later received representatives of the 'Fiscal Soledad Cazorla Prieto' Fundación Mujeres (Women's Foundation) Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are given to children whose mothers have died as a result of gender-based violence, and as a result, are economically and emotionally vulnerable.
Queen Letizia brought back separates from the outfit she wore in November 2019 for a visit to Seville.
The top is the red Hugo Boss BOSS 'Banora' gathered neck silk blouse.
The skirt is a custom piece by Carolina Herrera. The poppy print can be found on the designer's short-sleeve knit dress.
Below is a closer look at the black ruffled leather waist belt which Letizia has worn on numerous occasions.
The brand has remained a mystery but I have finally identified it! I found the same style in taupe by Burberry.
Today Letizia wore her black Steve Madden 'Dominique' over-the-knee suede boots.
She finished the look with her gold bamboo design huggie hoop earrings.
The Queen of Spain held a meeting with the Federación Española de Enfermedades Raras, FEDER (Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases) at FEDER headquarters in Madrid.
Her Majesty was informed of the group's challenges and opportunities for the year ahead. FEDER will heavily focus on research, social transformations, and services in 2020. Comprising of over 300 associations, FEDER's aim through projects and services is to enhance the quality of life for people living with rare diseases and their families.

The King & Queen of Spain undertook their first public engagement of the New Year today.
Their Majesties presided over the traditional celebration of the Pascua Militar, which is deeply rooted in the Spanish military and dates back to 1782 during the reign of Carlos III. The ceremony is held annually on the day of Epiphany at the Royal Palace of Madrid.
Following the parade, King Felipe and Queen Letizia made their way to the Throne Room within the Palace to meet officials from the Government, the Ministry of Defence and the Civil Guard.

As tradition dedicates, Queen Letizia wore a long dress. It is customary for royal women to wear a full length gown to the Pascua Militar ceremony.
Below is a look back at Letizia's previous ensembles since becoming Queen consort.
Today she opted for a royal blue wrap-style gown featuring a shawl collar and fastened with a single button on the side. The designer of the piece is currently unknown.
Below is a closer look at the top half of the long-sleeved dress.
Queen Letizia complemented the tailored gown with a pair of pearl, diamond and sapphire stud earrings.
Letizia debuted the cluster earrings at her pre-wedding gala dinner on 21 May 2004, but they have not been seen since. Núria Tiburcio from Vanitatis says the earrings belonged to Maria de las Mercedes of Orléans who was the Queen of Spain as the first wife of King Alfonso XII in 1878.
On her feet Letizia wore the navy Nina Ricci pointed toe suede pumps.
Below is a closer look at Her Majesty's up-do.
